The Power of Love

The power of God is not physical force, but spiritual power. God does not force you against your will. He empowers you to do His will. Understand the power of God through one simple word. That word is love. The love of God is the power of God, from the Father, through the Son, in the Spirit. God becomes your loving Father, through faith in His Son. The Holy Spirit is the power of Christ in you.

The love of God the Father sent His Son into the world to die for our sins. The power of God raised Jesus from the dead. The Holy Spirit empowers us to know God as our Father through faith in Christ. The love of the Spirit is Christ in you, the power of God. "The love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit" (Romans 5:5).

Pray the Word: Father, fill my life with the power of Your love divine. Enable me to love others through Your love. Pour Your love into my heart today, through Jesus Christ my Lord. Amen.

Do the Word: Let God love others through you. Share the love of God with others in word and deed. Share the story of God's love for others in Jesus Christ. Remind people often that God loves them. The cross of Jesus proves it.
